Miss Sporty lip creams

Even though I just did a blog post on possibly the best drugstore liquid lipsticks, when I saw these on Instagram, I knew I wanted to try them out. They are obviously more affordable and I wanted to see if they were any good so I picked up three of the shades to test out.

First of all I really like these pinky nude shades, they go with every make up look. I got the shades Lively Rose, Vibrant Mocha and Cheerful Pink When applying I would say they do have a bit of a smell to them, like you know that chemical scent, which they did try to hide, but you can still smell it. So that’s a bit off putting, I don’t really like that typical chemical scent to any make up product.

In consistency it is moussy, I find them similar to The Body Shop Matte Liquid Lips. They are pigmented enough and have a nice colour payoff. They dry down quickly and they are comfortable to wear, but I find them drying after a few hours.

They claim to be kiss-proof and to last for 24 hours, they do last well, but only until you eat something, and then it rubs off on the inner parts of your lip. The only good thing is the colours are so close to actual lip colours, that I think it’s not that noticeable if it rubs off, which is good, if you have no chance to touch it up during the day.

psx_20180206_120237198748108.jpg

All in all, I think you get a liquid lipstick that is worth its price, I think that there are better ones in the drugstore, like the Maybelline Superstay Matte Inks, but these are a great option if your looking for something cheap and easy to wear.

Hope you liked this little review, and let me know if you tried these liquid lipstick, and what do you think about them.

Lipstick ready for Autumn

Well as it is already October I thought it was only natural to type up a blog post about my fave lippies for Autumn. So here it is 😊.

As much as Autumn is kind of all about the berry and dark shades I actually like to wear more nude shades as well as the occasional dark shades too. So they’re are both in my faves.

PSX_20171008_145310

The first one that is I really really like for this season is the Maybelline Vivid Matte liquid lipstick in the shade Nude Flush. It gives this perfect pink nude colour to the lips and pretty much goes with every make up look. The only thing is that it doesn’t dry down completely so you feel it being tacky basically throughout the time you’re wearing it, so naturally it does rub off too and it is not long lasting. However it is a very pretty colour and just an absolute must have for every season really.

PSX_20171008_145028

To stay within the natural shades the next lipstick is my other nude fave and it is the Tanya Burr Cosmetics lipstick in the shade Pink Cocoa. This one is a darker pinky nude shade but because it is darker it goes better wih the Autumn theme of make ups. This is really the your-lip-shade-but-better colour. It has a satin finish, definitely not long lasting, not that it claims to be.

To go to a bit darker shade, and to express my love for purple toned lippies, my next fave is from the NYX lingerie lipstick line and it is the shade Embellishment. This one has a different formulation and it feels quite moussey on the lips, but also very light and you can barely feel that it is there. It dries down completely and stays put for hours. One of my fave colours to wear.

To mention some berry shades as well in my faves I have chosen another still-could-be-nude-but-it-is-darker than-that shade and it is from The Body Shop. This liquid lipstick is in the shade Nairobi Camellia. It has a slight berry tone to it, although not too much as it is still quite stuble on the lips. This one dries down matte and last longer than all the ones I mentioned before however it is still not long lasting. But smells really good.

PSX_20171008_145146

I left the darkest shade of the bunch to last and it is I think also the darkest lippies I own. I actually bought this months ago but waited for Autumn to really use it as I think it is a typical Autumn colour. It is the Barry M Matte Me Up liquid lipstick in the shade Embellish. ( looks like a theme giving these names to the purple lipsticks haha ) It is this dark purple shade which is perfect for nights out I think. However it would be pretty in the daytime too with winged liner and some lashes. It is a lip paint so it is a very wet formula but dries down matte. It stays on for a quite a long time. I really like the shade and just can’t wait to rock it.

So here are all my fave lippies I am wearing mostly in this season. What are your fave Autumn essential lipsticks? xx

My holiday make up

Summer is the time to be a bit lighter with your make up anyway, but when you’re visiting a hot country then the last thing you want basically is to put make up on your face. Some people do it. I can’t stand feeling like the sun is burning all the makeup I have on my face into my skin. I’m pretty sure it is not very healthy either. However there still a little bit of make up that you can do that will make you feel more put together and pretty on your holidays!

PSX_20170813_185030

So this is the make up I wear during the day. For the evening especially if I go out I do wear a bit of make up but not too much. Bronzer, highlighter, eyeliner and of course some eyeshadows. The one I definitely gonna take on holiday is the Tanya Burr Cosmetics my paradise eye palette. With eyeliner make sure you use a waterproof one just in case you get hot and start sweating. 😉

PSX_20170813_185456

Brows

The one thing I cannot leave anywhere without is filling in my eyebrows. They make me feel put together and my face just looks better when my brows are done even if I have no make up on. The best thing would be to get it tinted before you go on holiday so you don’t have to bother with it, but if you prefer to do it on your own then just go for it. I’d definitely suggest using a gel product to set your brows after you filled them in to make sure they stay put all day and won’t be running down your face.

PSX_20170813_185354

Concealer

Now I know I said I can’t stand make up burning into your face, but another thing I can’t stand is dark cirlces under my eyes. So I use the tiniest amount of concealer to try and hide them. I’m one of those persons that just has dark undereyes, no matter how much I sleep or the eye creams I use they’re still gonna be a bit dark. Of course if your undereyes are not dark, you can just totally miss this step.

PSX_20170813_185554

Mascara

Back in my homecountry it is above 30 degrees pretty much all summer, so the only make up item I used to wear was mascara. This is the perfect way to get a no make up make up look. I like to have really bold lashes anyway so when on holiday and that’s the only thing I put on my eyes I don’t hold back, haha. One tip though, use a waterproof eyeliner on the tightline to make your lashes appear fuller.

PSX_20170813_184845

PSX_20170813_184653

Lips

Holidays to me scream bright vivid lips. It’s the one time where you can get away with using the brigthest and boldest colour. All the bright pink colours are made for holidays.

So this is all the make up I use on holidays. I only put suncream on my face after my skincare routine and I feel like my skin is always grateful for its little make up free holiday too!

What make up do you like to wear on your holidays? xx

Tanya Burr’s Natural Ambiance collection review

I can’t even tell you how much I love Tanya Burr Cosmetics. I think she does a wonderful job with all her products, they are good quality and really affordable. So when I heard she was going to release another collection I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.

The collection consist of two eye shadow palettes and two new lipstick. Both are on the natural side regarding colors.

I’m always excited to get new eye shadow and I love me a good lippie. 🤗

PSX_20170520_183612

The lipsticks are such gorge shades and a perfect match for the palettes. Here is the swatch for them both Bear Hug and Sunday walk. ( again I love the names of the products ).

PSX_20170520_182141

They are creamy and have satin finishes as the other lipstick do too. They are not drying on the lips. Also unfortunately they don’t have a good staying power either as like a liquid lipstick, Personally I don’t mind reapplying it throughout the day.

PSX_20170520_183335

PSX_20170520_182951

Now let’s talk about the palettes. Beautiful shades. I don’t really do brave eye make up, not anymore anyway, so I always opt for natural colours. These two palettes have all the natural shades you could wish for. Matte colour and shimmery shades as well.

The first palette is filled with rose gold shades that just scream summer, and it has a matching name to it, My Paradise. The shades are pigmented, not glittery and just look gorgeous on the eyes paired with loads of mascara.

I was also excited for a bit more coloured eye shadow palette and I’ve always liked a natural green eye shadow, so happy to own this beautiful palette, My Escape. Again it is perfect for creating a natural eye look but still add a bit more colour to it.

Here are the swatches of the shades from both palette:

I hope you liked this review and enjoy this new collection as much as I do. 🙂

Hope you have a great day! x

Easy spring/summer make up

PSX_20170512_105829

With the sun being more and more out, and the weather getting warmer it truly feels like it is finally spring and summer is not that far away. Which means you can pop a bit more colour in your make up routine and I wanted to show you a pretty easy and simple make up routine that is light and easy.

After cleaning my face, I use the Body Shop Vitamin E moisturizer, which has been a favourite of mine for the last couple of weeks. Then I apply primer first. I use Benefit Porefessionals primer, as it does a great job at hiding my giant pores on my cheeks. For foundation I have been using a more watery foundation, and that is the Maybelline fit me foundation in the shade 102. It is very easy to apply blends in very easy, and because it is more watery consistency then creamy, you can barely feel it on your face. Which is perfect for when it gets warmer outside.

PSX_20170512_110113

For under my eyes, to cover up my dark circles, I have been using the Wonder Pencil by NYX. It  does a great job at hiding those dark circle and makes me look more awake and healthy. On top of this I use everyone’s fave concealer, the Collection Lasting Perfection one, in the shade fair. To finish off the base off my face make up , I’m setting everything with the Rimmel stay matte powder.

For my brows, I use the Natural collection eye shadow in crushed walnut. To start off my eye make up, I apply primer first. I use the NYX proof it! eye shadow primer. For my eye lids I’m using the Make Up Revolution palette, and taking the light brown shade for my crease and the lightest shade to cover all my lid. Since I want to go easy on the eye I’m only putting black eye pencil on my upper waterline. To finish off the eyes I use the new L’Oreal baby roll mascara which has become my new fave mascara. Gives such curls!

PSX_20170512_110537

PSX_20170512_110713

Now I go back to finish my base make up and for contour I use Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer, and for blush and highlight I use the Tanya Burr Cosmetics cheek palette in rosy flush.

For my lips I’m also using a new discovery, and that is the Maxfactor matte lipstick in the shade rose. Such a pretty pink shade for this time of the year.

So this is my easy spring/summer make up look. Hope you liked it and recreate it too!

BarryM Matte Me Up lip kit review

I was soooo excited when Barry M introduced the new lip kits. As soon as my budget let me I got all three and I’m here to tell you what I think about them.

I don’t own any other lip kits ( especially not the Kylie ones unfortunately) so I can’t compare them to anything else. The one thing that is definitely true that they are cheaper than the Kylie cosmetics ones as they retail for £6.99.

I have mentioned it another blog posts that I’m a sucker for matte lips and Barry M does lip liner so well anyway, these lip kits instantly got my expectation pretty high.

wp-1489326967153.jpg

I have to say I wasn’t disappointed. I love all three shades and everything about them.

So the lip kits come in three shades, To Go, Pose and Runway. They contain a lip liner and a matte lip paint. First of all let me talk about the lip liners. As I said Barry M does really good lip liner. They glide on the lips, without pulling it and they are very pigmented. If you want to you can even wear them on their own without the lip paint.

wp-1489326864841.jpg

wp-1489326729568.jpg

Speaking of the lip paints, they do feel like paint. So light formulation allows you to legit paint your lips with it, even the Too faced matte lipstick don’t glide on that easily as these ones. You get the true colour of the lip paint once you let it dry.

They stay on for soo long, even after eating food, and I had a hard time removing them with a wipe when I was taking photos… so if you want something that will last all day, definitely give these a try, because just like me you won’t be disappointed.

Quick and easy Valentine’s day make up

I knooow that Valentine’s day is either hated or loved, but you can still find yourself just wrapped around with all the cute stuff that comes out around this time of the year. Not to mention all the make up and make up looks. I don’t particularly hate or love Valentine’s day, but since I have a boyfriend , I do want to look pretty for that day. So I though I’d come up with a quick and easy look, that’s perfect for Valentine’s day, but can be worn basically whenever you want to.

In my opinion Valentine’s day just screams red lipstick. It is an essential bit of the whole make up look. And because you’re creating a bold lip, you need to keep your eyes as simple as possible. What I had in my mind, was a more classy, ’50 look, but let me walk you through exactly how to achieve this look.

wp-1486896972539.jpg

wp-1486889315407.jpg

wp-1486889189552.jpg

First thing first is primer. You want your make up to last throughout the whole evening so primer is very important, I use the Benefit Porefessionals primer, as it is one of the best primer out there. It will give you a flawless base to put your make up on. For foundation, I use the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation in the shade light porcelain ( yes I am that pale! ). To make under eyes circle disappear or for any blemishes I use everyone’s favourite concealer, the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in the shade fair. It gives you such a nice coverage without being too thick on the skin. Then I set everything with the Rimmel Stay Matte powder in the shade transparent.

After this I go onto my eyes and I will finish my face later. First I’m applying NYX Proof it! eye shadow primer, and while it sets, I’ll do my brows. I get my brows tinted, but I still like to fill them in and for that I use the Natural Collection eye shadow in the shade crushed walnut. After this I just brush them into shape, and that’s my eyebrows done. If you want you can set it with a gel, mine just usually doesn’t get messy, so I don’t need it. For my eyes I’m only applying a white, barely-able-to-see eye shadow, and that is from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette in the shade white chocolate. Just to give my eyes some cleanness. After discovering tight lining I can’t do my make up without it. I take my Soap and Glory eyeliner pencil and line my upper lash line. This will give you fuller looking lashes. And finally I use my L’oreal Super Liner eyeliner to create a winged liner, and I’m not going shy with it 😉 To finish off the eye make up I use the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara.

Now it’s time to finish off my face. For contouring I use the Benefit Hoola bronzer. For blush I take the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Rosy Cheek palette and apply the shade pretty peony. This is a nice pinky shade, not too strong, and it has a golden sheen to it, which I think looks pretty with the red lip look. To finish off my face I use Benefit High Beam to get the most gorgeous highlight (ever!).

Moving on to the lip, I’ll take my Rimmel Exaggerate lip liner and line my lips. Then I apply the Tanya Burr Cosmetics lipstick in the shade Big Kiss. A perfect red to wear on Valentine’s day.

Last but not least, to set everything I’m going to use The Body Shop Vitamin E hydrating face mist. I’ve recently seen it on YouTube that this mist can also be used as a setting spray, and it really does a wonderful job with keeping everything together and on your face all day.

I hope you enjoyed reading this make up look tutorial and that you recreate it!

Have a happy Valentine’s Day!

xoxo

January Favourites

January always feels like the longest month of the year. Buuut if is sooo god for trying out new bits and pieces, especially if you got yourself a handful of goodies in the January sales 😉 Not to mention all the Christmas presents that that I had a lot of time trying out and using in the month of January. SO here are ALL the products I loved in these long five weeks of January.

wp-1486461738252.jpg

My first favorite of the month is the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Beautifully Defined palette (which I believe you can still get from the Feelunique website). I generally loved Tanya’s Christmas collection, and was very excited about the palettes especially. This one has gorgeous eye shadows in it, a highlighter, a liquid highlighter and a bronzer. I wanted to have this palette to be honest because of the liquid highlighter but actually ended up liking the bronzer a lot more. It is a nice caramel shade, I find it goes very well with my pale skin. Easy to blend, and looks very natural on the face. Also in love with the eye shadows, the pigmentation is on point as always. They’re just pretty every day colours.

wp-1486462296958.jpg

My second favourite is another palette of Tanya’s. It was the first one I had my eye on, when she released the collection. It is the Pretty Unstoppable palette. It has four eye shadows, a highlighter, a blusher, and a matte mini lipstick. I think this is the palette that had the most to offer in term of quantity of products and price. Really like the eye shadows, easy to create an everyday look with them. But with the darker shades it is easy to do a more of a night out look as well. Reminds me of Tanya’s other eye shadow palettes.

wp-1486461552898.jpg

For Christmas I got the long-wanted Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade Queen B. I really, really, really like the formula and the shade of this lipstick. This is the only Too Faced Melted lipstick I own, but after using this I definitely want to try more. It glides on so easily on the lips, the pigmentation is just beautiful, literally one swipe is enough to get the full effect. It is not too drying on the lips, more like you can’t even feel like you’re wearing anything on your lips. Win, win!

wp-1486461895061.jpg

A new discovery this month is the Maybelline the Falshies Push Up mascara. I did another blog post on my fave mascaras where I talk about the reasons why I like this one, so I’ll leave you a link for it, if you would like to read it.

 https://perfectlyimperfectbeautyonline.com/2017/01/22/3-fave-mascaras/

wp-1486462192801.jpg

This is not a product I purchased in January to tell you the truth, but I definitely rediscovered it in my collection, and found myself reaching for it every day. I like pink shade blushes the most. I just think they suit my pale complexion nicely. This blush is very pigmented, so little bit goes a long way. It also has a tiny bit of glitter in it, so if you don’t like that avoid this product, but when applied to the face it is not glittery at all, just gives you a nice sheen, which is always nice with blushes.

What have been your faves in January?

Tanya Burr Cosmetics lipsticks review

First of all welcome back! I was taking a bit of a break from blogging for personal reasons but now I’m back and ready to roll again.

Second of all I have to apologize in advance for not getting all of of the the lipsticks, but I decided that I will only get the ones that I really like.

When I saw the pictures on Instagram that Tanya is going to release lipsticks I was beyond happy. I knew I could expect the best quality from her so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them as soon as I could.

So altogether I got four colours out of the six colours she released. The two shades that I didn’t get were just too corally toned for me and they just don’t suit me, so I don’t think I’ll get them, but nonetheless they are still very gorgeous shades.

wp-1483890461405.jpg

First of all I’d like to talk about the formulas. I have to say that they are my favourite lipstick formulas I’ve ever tried, they glide on very easily on the lips. I have to talk about the pigmentation as well, all the colours that I own are very pigmented, literally just one swipe of lipstick can give the full effect of the lipstick, but of course you can always layer it up (but you really don’t need to). It doesn’t say on the packaging and I haven’t heard Tanya mention it either, but they’re not supposed to be long lasting, however I find that they sit nicely on the lips for several hours and even with eating the lipstick only goes from the inner part of the lip.

wp-1483890366528.jpg

wp-1483890366514.jpg

I like the satin finish they have too. They not super shiny just a nice subtle sheen to them. They’re not tacky in any way and I’m very happy with the fact that they are not drying on the lips either.

So the first colour I got was the brightest colour of the bunch in the shade Central Park. It is a very bright almost berry pink shade. It is very pretty with just winged eyeliner and loads of mascara.

wp-1483890366518.jpg

The next one is a pretty red shade, which was perfect for Christmas time, under the name Big Kiss. I like that it is a little bit darker red with no coral undertone ( if you like more of a corally shade then I’d recommend the Wild Safari ) just a pretty red. I do wear lip liner with any red lipstick , but I tried it without and it doesn’t seem to be runny or easily smudged in any way.

wp-1483890737760.jpg

The third colour that I have is the lightest shade, Birthday Cake. ( can I just mention that I love the names Tanya gives to her products ). This light pink shade is right up my street as this kind of a pink/nude shade has always been my favourite. Definitely goes perfectly with smokey eyes, or with any heavy eye makeup.

wp-1483890461581.jpg

Last but not least, I think it’s safe to say that everybody’s fave shade Pink Cocoa is a favourite for a reason. The pretty dark pink nude shade is just perfect for every day wear. It is very flattering I find, and it goes with most eye make up and outfit too. I’d say if you’re on a  budget or not sure which shade to go for, try this one first. Pretty sure you’ll be satisfied 😉 .
